Mark Hamill has offered his thoughts on Star Wars
: The Last Jedi
's epic runtime, comparing the eighth episode of the Skywalker saga to the classic crime film, The Godfather. Director Rian Johnson has confirmed his movie clocks in at 150 minutes , making it the longest installment of the Star Wars
franchise to date. The galaxy far, far away has always steered closer to two hours, but Lucasfilm felt it was necessary to break tradition this time. With all The Last Jedi
has on its plate, making it more protracted than its predecessor reads as the right move. Since Johnson is now developing an all-new Star Wars
trilogy , it's safe to say his approach was correct.
